Abstract
The Grass Breeding Project is primarily concerned with whose species which are well entrenched in commercial practice in high potential areas, such as Rhodes, Setaria and, to a lesser extent, Guinea grass. This entrenchment is our main criterion of priority. For the same reason we also work on Napier grass and Sorghum, for grazing. In fact we were the first to introduce and study Sorghum hybrids such as 17HnygrRzer" (1) which have become popular with farmers and government stations such as Lanet nnd Naivasha. Other species .such as Kikuyu and star grass provide valuable gr[1.zing whore they occur naturc1.l1y, but we do not consider them capable of coming anywhere near the above grasses in value for planted pastures.
